4 min read

We’re highlighting the maternity styles & postpartum pieces you need for the season, plus how & where to style them. 

After last year, we could all use a little more holiday spirit this season. Our newest arrivals will brighten your day & put some cheer in your #40WEEKSOFCHIC wardrobe. No matter what seasonal function you’re attending, these outfit ensembles will help you feel more prepared. 

FOR THE WORK PARTY

Work parties are a thing again. Good thing we have the best maternity dresses & best postpartum styles for you to style. 

Your 9-5 is bringing back the annual holiday party, and you need a stunner that also flatters your 1st to 4th shape. Why not pair The Rib Knit Dress, a Something Navy favorite, with a new pair of black strappy heels (we know you’ve been eyeing them anyway). Dangly gold earrings will take the look even further. 

If you already have a dress picked out, why not layer it with the BB Dakota Velvet Kimono? For the parties that have an indoor/outdoor element, it will keep you warm without compromising on style. Plus, it gives you a chance to play around with different textures in your look.

Another instant classic is this long sleeve number from BB Dakota, featuring a front bow detail. Simple enough to last you through the season & beyond, with just enough extra flair to style up for a holiday soirée.  

FOR THE DINNER PARTY WITH FRIENDS  

You’ve been eyeing this event on your calendar. Dress for it with our top-rated maternity and postpartum styles.

We know there are few things you look forward to more than a good dinner party. With just the right amount of people and a lowkey yet still elevated atmosphere, what’s not to love? This season, you deserve the perfect outfit to match.

The faux leather joggers everyone is talking about would be a good place to start. Designed by Pietro Brunelli, these maternity ankle pants are crafted with a stretchy panel within the waistband that can be pulled up over the belly or folded down. AKA, they’re the versatile pair you need in your now & later wardrobe. 

For a dinner party look, style them with kitten heels or chunky leather boots and something classic up top, like our soft luxe maternity tank top with an oversized blazer.

And if you’re nursing, our luxe clip-down cami comes in a variety of colors and makes for the perfect base layer.

Add on this cozy open front maternity sweater from BB Dakota to keep you warm & looking on-trend.

FOR THE DAYTIME FAMILY EVENT

The perfect maternity styles for baking and hanging with family.

Whether your afternoon includes making sugary treats, decorating, or an outdoor adventure, an eye-catching ensemble is just what you need for any daytime holiday event. In case you missed it, shackets are kind of a thing right now. From Zara to & Other Stories, brands have been churning out shirt jackets left and right.

The flannel material combined with the slightly oversized, structured fit makes them an outerwear choice that looks equally cool and casual. This style from BB Dakota features a boyfriend fit in a brown plaid color, making it the hybrid piece your wardrobe needs.

Style it with light wash denim, like these maternity jeans from Joes or this slightly cropped pair from Citizens of Humanity, which look chic & cool from AM to PM.

FOR THE SWANKY WEEKEND AFFAIR

Play dress up: these holiday maternity dresses (that double as postpartum dresses) were made specially for you.

If you have a more upscale event on the calendar, we have the pieces that will give you peace of mind.

The maternity slip dress of your dreams by Pietro Brunelli & curated by our friends at Something Navy comes in the prettiest shade of olive, so you can wear a seasonal shade without overdoing it. An It-girl dress if there ever was one. Pair with block heels in a bright shade for a pop of color.

Another showstopper to consider donning is this ruffle patchwork floral number from BB Dakota. Just the right amount of flirty while still being dressy enough to wear to a formal evening party. This dress says: channel your inner fashionista and be unapologetic tonight. Plus, for our nursing muses, it’s the swingy number you need for post-baby.

FOR A WINTER DATE NIGHT

The must-have maternity styles for an effortless date night look.

There are endless opportunities for date nights during the holiday season. Luckily for you, we have the maternity dresses and postpartum styles you’ll actually want to wear. This v-neck knit sweater from Splendid is equal parts cozy and stylish, so you can snuggle up by the fire or style with skinny jeans and head out on the town.

Another maternity sweater option is this boyfriend fit wool style from Pietro Brunelli. In two winter shades, ice blue or heather grey, it’s the perfect oversized piece heading into the holiday season (plus you can be ultra-comfortable no matter what trimester you’re in & long after, too).
